There is no doubt that Stephanie McMahon is one of the most powerful women in the world today. She is a businesswoman, co-founder of the Connor's Cure charity, and the Chief Brand Officer of the WWE. You may have heard of her husband as well, Triple H; he's only Chief Operating Officer of the WWE and a future WWE Hall of Famer. Once Stephanie's Dad Vince retires, the keys to the kingdom will be passed down to pro wrestling's most powerful couple.
The McMahon Family has been synonymous with professional wrestling going back to Stephanie's grandfather, Vincent J. McMahon, who created the WWWF. This eventually became the WWF. Her father, Vincent K. McMahon, is the current chairman and CEO of the WWE. Her mother Linda McMahon was also a CEO of the WWE until she decided to get into politics.
Stephanie has been involved with the company from an early age, so the WWE Universe has watched her grow at nearly every stage of her life. It's made for a unique opportunity to create an article showcasing photos of her life "inside" the WWE from 1985 to today. While she wasn't in the spotlight during her school years, she debuted on television at age twenty-three and has had a television role ever since.
This article covers many different facets of Stephanie's career, including her storyline debut, and various different iterations of her rise to power including her current role in "The Authority."

Just last week on Monday Night Raw, there was a bombshell of a return. Vince McMahon was all set to give the "prestigious" Vincent J. McMahon (Vince's father) Legacy Of Excellence Award. While some thought it was a serious award at first, we all found out it was an angle as he awarded it to Stephanie! Before Stephanie was able to get out a single word of her acceptance speech, we heard some familiar theme music we haven't heard in a long time. After nearly six and a half years away from WWE television, Shane McMahon returned to the WWE with a vengeance. He wants control again, and will have to wrestle the Undertaker at WrestleMania in order to get it.
